  • Dynamics Study of Compass-Gait Biped Robot through Nonlinear Time-Series Analysis

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3 - 10
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (765 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Passive dynamic walking (PDW) provides us better insight for understanding human walking, for developing prosthetic limbs and for designing superior bipedal robots. In this paper, we investigated the dynamics of a simple PDW, 2D compass-gait biped model that loosely look like human legs (without knees), using time-series analysis based on nonlinear dynamics. Previously, this passive biped model ha... View full abstract»

    As vehicle population continues to increase, traffic management and issues related to congestion is an inevitable consequence. The path taken by drivers to arrive at their destination has the tendency of reducing the traffic within the network or increasing it. The choice of path, however, depends on how much traffic information is available to the drivers at the time of deciding the path to take.... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (314 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The paper presents both an intelligent approach to better management of pedestrian flows by means of a mobile application and a simulation model to asses this approach. The proposed concept is supposed to be used at heritage sites, which are overloaded by tourists, and which have a number of potential attractions within a walking distance. The proposed approach assumes to use data of a number of v... View full abstract»

    For industrial applications, Bidirectional DC-DC converters (BDCs) are used in recent years. And also their efficiency results are improved to apply different control methods. ANN algorithms is one of the new control topic in literature. This paper attempts to improve the dynamic performance of bidirectional dc-dc converter. And it deals with a novel control scheme related with an adaptive input v... View full abstract»

    In order to establish an effective collaboration between post-disaster management systems (PDMS) and individuals for data sharing, appropriate agreements with a timely response for the need of these individuals must be adopted. Such agreements will increase their willingness to participate in this process. Additionally establishing an appropriate relationship between governments, private and acade... View full abstract»

    Few trends in education in the last century match the sudden onset of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). The modern MOOC movement started in late 2011, when the first standard MOOC was launched. In few years, MOOCs have received immense coverage in media, academia and industry. MOOCs have established one of the key facts that education is no longer a privilege but a basic right. Students can lea... View full abstract»

    For the use in rehabilitation robotic devices, various types of actuators are currently being investigated. Variable impedance actuators seem promising concerning individualized training, comfort and safety. For the control of actuators, some sensors are required, however, to keep the rehabilitation device light, also the implementation of measuring instruments should be reduced. Thus, in this con...

    Data characteristics stored in the database evolve over the time. Nowadays, it is inevitable to store all states of the objects over the time. Paradigms of conventional database are based on managing actual states, which are inappropriate. Therefore, temporal approach has been developed. In this paper, we deal with our proposed temporal solution based on attribute level architecture, which can be ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (267 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper is about the fault diagnosis of discrete event systems (DES) under time constraints. The DES contains a series of tasks with well-defined time intervals for each, collected during repetitive runs of the system. The repetitive runs allowed us to calculate average function time for each task. The objective is to propose an algorithm that verifies the correct behavior of each individual ta...

    Correct recognition of emotion veracity exhibited in facial gestures is troublesome for people. Yet, there is a belief that computer systems are able to perceive some tiny changes correlated to veracity expression, invisible for people, and therefore are able to improve proper perception of emotions. This work addresses the problem of spontaneous and posed smile recognition and suggests two approa... View full abstract»
